Trace Feana la Deep Well aaa People
NEBRASKA CITY. Neb., Nov. 21.-(Spe-clal.)
Gilbert Hanks, one of the wealthy
farmers residing south of the city, Is hav
ing a deep well sunk on his place. After
reaching a depth of 1.160 feet the drill
struck shale, which hss the appearance
of oil bearing and Is such shale as found
in oil regions. He hss sent a number of
specimens to th" stste geologist. He ex
pects to sink the well to the depth of
,e) feet. He has struck traces of oil be
fore, but none so marked as those encoun
tered at this time.
Two weeks ago an old well at the starch
works, which Is down to the depth of PRO
feet, and sunk a number of years ago, and
which has been flowing ever since, began
to show traces of oil and the traces have
become stronger since then and now con
siderable oil Is shown on the water which
comes from that well. It Is thought that
the oil has been confined down there by
the heavy volume of water since the welt
was bored and baa Just found a way out.
The cltlsens sunk a well at the brick
yards. In the southern part of the city,
last year to the depth of 876 feet and tho
funds were Exhausted and the drill was
withdrawn and the hole covered up and
now there Is considerable talk about open
ing It up and sinking It deeper, for msny
have ben convinced that oil Is to be found
In paying quantities. The men who sre
doing the work are from the oil fields and
they have contended all of the time that
there was plenty of oil beneath the sur
face and the only thing was to strike deep
enough and In the right territory.
